Mild mucosa thickening is a common incidental finding and may not be suggestive of chronic rhinosinusitis. You need to. Undergo diagnostic nasal endoscopy also. If diagnosis is confirmed then treatment can be planned. Usually other causes for headaches needs to ruled out
Next Steps
Consult nearby ENT specialist for confirmation of diagnosis and appropriate treatment if required
